Echo Park Rec Center seeks women for basketball league

The Echo Park Recreation Center is seeking women for its new 2011 Women's Basketball League. Practices are being held on Monday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
at the Echo Park Recreation Center Gym (1632 Bellevue Ave) across from Echo Park Lake. A minimum of 24 players are needed to form the league, but practices have already begun.

No experience is necessary. Under the leadership of Coach Ramon Alvarez, participants will learn how to dribble the ball, execute a proper lay up, use a zone defense, understand the rules of the game, and have lots fun.

Women of all ages are welcome! Currently, the oldest player in the league is 70 and the youngest player is 22.

Cost is $50 per person for a ten week session.

For more information please contact Echo Park Recreation Center Program Director Marjorie Dall at 213-250-3578.
